A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk emails, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it’s stunningly easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the concrete address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with several clicks if you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes under any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this option can be done in the very same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
